After the incredible and shocking ending of beautiful creatures comes the next book Beautiful Darkness! Ethan Wate, a young boy who believed his town was so lifeless now wishes that had been accurate. He was introduced to a secret world of supernatural beings such as casters, incubuses and seer’s. After Lena suffers the great loss of her uncle Macon she becomes distant. Things in Gaitlyn just continue to get stranger when Ethan begins to have visions that only he can see. The book introduces new characters. John Breed an unfamiliar guy who just seems to be constantly reappearing and causing trouble. Liv is a girl who is working in the library. And many more! Ethan, Link and Liv get caught up in the underground passageways of the caster world where nothing and no one are what they really seem! Lena and Amma are keeping one very large secret from Ethan that can change so much!
Beautiful Darkness was a pretty good book it wasn’t amazing but it definitely wasn’t bad. The book is just a little slow, it took me a while to read it, but I had a friend tell me that the second book isn’t the most interesting, so I went in knowing what to expect of it. The whole book isn’t boring but there are certain sections of the book that just drag on too long. Once you get past the second book you are back to being interested again though! Stick with the series because it is different than most books.

Over first half was really slow. By three quarters into the book, it really started to take off. I didn't read the first book. But looking forward to reading the last one. I would still recommend reading this book, just warning you it takes a while before it takes off. Thanks.

I lead the way and, motley or not, my friends were right behind me. My friends, a Succubus, and a mountain lion named after a volatile voodoo god. I only hoped it was enough.

Lena and Ethan have lived through the day that they had been dreading for months, Lena's sixteenth birthday, but not without some sacrifices. With Macon's death, Lena is depressed and lost, and there doesn't seem to be anything that Ethan can do to help her, despite his own experiences with grief. Then Lena begins pulling away and taking risks, and Ethan, still not aware of what really happened to him the night of Lena's birthday, can't understand why. So he digs deeper into Caster lore and his mother's research to look for a way to save Lena and what they have before it's too late. But once you've entered the Caster world, you can never go back, and some secrets Ethan uncovers will put him and everyone he loves in far more danger than he can imagine.
